It's never easy.
We’ve all had to say goodbye to the people we love at some point in our lives. Whether it be a happy celebration or a sad goodbye, we all know how we react to having to let someone go for good.
Some people cry, some people laugh, some hold on for a long time, and some have nothing to say.
However you express your emotions, it is a universal truth that saying goodbye is a hard thing to do.
I most recently thought about my own reaction to saying goodbye. With the school year ending, I left my friends, my boyfriend and my professors — it was not easy for me this year.
I also found out a loved one is sick, and for the first time in my life I thought about how I would say goodbye to her.
I consider myself a fortunate person as I have not experienced very many sad goodbyes, mostly happy goodbyes with a hopeful feeling for the future.
But have you ever wondered why you have the emotions you have?
Listening to what your zodiac sign says about you is an interesting way to understand how you react to certain life challenges or triumphs.
The traits of a zodiac sign stay the same. If you are a Taurus you are reliable, a Scorpio is passionate, and so on.

You’re very good at goodbyes. You’re expressive, quick-witted, affectionate and always seem to find all the right words to say.
